My creative process is a deep excavation, a dissection of the emotional process between soul and sight. I do not want viewers to see what I see in my work, but to get immersed in their own version, in their own experience ... in their own story.
Joy, love, sorrow, frustration, excitement... A warm orange red cheers up a gloomy midnight blue… A big, bold, jealous deep purple takes over… Let’s invite a bit of white to make peace. And so these large fields of color start talking to and playing with each other, layer over layer, foundation colors under translucent colors under contrasting colors, it’s all a moving target of shapes, lines, and textures. Rolling, brushing, dripping, spattering. They all add up to tell the story.
Technically, my work is highly influenced by color field abstract expressionism, a style in which I ventured during the 15 years I lived in Washington DC. It consists primarily of medium and large-format acrylic and mixed media works on wood, where countless overlapping layers of color express the complexity of emotions.
